Greetings! I am Jackie Hidalgo, CCR Advisor. Originally from California, I moved to Texas in 1999 and have been at Hightower High School ever since! I have been the College & Career Readiness Advisor since 2013.
After I graduated from high school, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy, wanting to "see the world." Life ensued, and several years later, I was married, with children. I did eventually return to school, eager to begin my studies and obtain a degree.
While I did not pursue my secondary education immediately after high school, getting a college degree was always in my plans...it just took me a little longer to get there! I am passionate about helping students figure out and create their post-secondary plans. My role as CCR Advisor allows me to do this, and I am available to all Hightower students, and their parents, who need help.
